What is the significance of the "server-status?auto" Apache url detailed in the Performance Explorer user guide?

When configuring an Apache server for monitoring, the Performance Explorer user guide states: "Restart your server. To verify the server's performance module, type the following url into your browser: http://hostname/server-status?auto."

The http://hostname/server-status?auto url should be accessible from any PC which can access the Apache web server.

Review the Apache Web Server documentation for more details e.g. http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.0/mod/mod_status.html. The "Status module" which you enable with mod_status returns a webpage to allow admins to see how the server is performing.

By default all browsers from all domains are barred. The server admin needs to specifically allow browsers from certain domains to be able to access the mod_status page. They do this in the httpd.conf config file, e.g.:
Deny from all
Allow from .foo.com.

So if you are trying to access http://hostname/server-status?auto from a domain which is not yet allowed it will fail as will monitoring with Performance Explorer.
